There is a bunch more talk than action, for sure, but it’s not for lack of motivation on my part. I’d like to think I’m cautiously optimistic about auto engines. In that vein, I have a 3 step process to go from keyboard commando to flight hardware: 1) Acquire a little 5.3 and prove that I can make it run with a standalone ignition (easy – off the shelf parts) and the Bendix mechanical fuel injection (harder, but parts fabrication is well along). If this works, go to step #2. 2) Fabricate a prop drive, bolt it to the 5.3 and try break it on the ground. If data warrants, go to step #3. 3) Build a flightworthy big inch LS and version 2.0 prop drive. If ground testing warrants, go fly. Currently, this is a back burner project, but I’m keeping my eyes out for the perfect (i.e. nearly free) test mule 5.3. When the project moves higher up to the top, I may have to bite the bullet and spend $400 bucks to buy the 5.3. At any rate, this course of action should allow me to test and verify my ideas without a significant risk. By the time I’m ready to lay out the cash for the “flight” engine, I should have a pretty good idea if this is going to work.
